espionage is working. this week a cyber security firm pinpointed a specific building in shanghai, china where they say hundreds of hacking operations took place to target computer networks at large companies, government agencies here in the u.s. and other countries around the world. and the report says the operations from that building, backed by the chinese military. when a cnn news crew drove by to investigate, security officials gave chase. >> keep driving. drive away. drive away. drive away. >> drive away! >> later confiscating some of the tape in their possession. officials in china strongly denying any of these claims. i will be very clear, the chinese always deny claims of hacking, cyber espionage, any kinds of military espionage. what's more, they accuse the u.s. of hacking into hundreds of computer networks in china. experts here in the u.s. have a tough time putting a number on how much damages are caused by these as much as $100 billion or more. intellectual property one of the most serious losses. industrial secrets that may have taken decades to assemble here are stolen wit

"wall street journal" broke the story about british aerospace. >> paul: is this a nuisance or genuinely a threat to national security or the u.s. economy? >> it's a real threat to the economy because it allows the chinese to steal terrabytes of intellectual property and all of a sudden the china puts out fighters that look like our fighters or bullet trains that look like german or japanese trains. so it allows them not to put the huge investment in research and development. >> paul: why do they do this? there is a tell secrets to actually innovation and do it yourself? why else do they do it? >> to me, what is new here is the media companies. the chinese has been so focused on commercial espionage and c

china can do something because it's north korea's ally. diplomats agreed they will continue to press authorities in pyongyang to hold off. leaders met. lim says they must be relentless in pursuing this. south korean and chinese officials will stay in closer contact over the nuclear test issue. south korea assumed the rotating presidency of the u.n. security council this morning. lim is believed to have told his chinese counterpart that the security council should impose additional sanctions on north korea if it carries out the nuclear test. north korea's latest rocket launch in december drew international condemnation. this hasn't deterred the country's leaders from revealing their space ambitions. they posted a computer animation of a prototype rocket called l galaxy 9. the animation shows that the rocket lifting off and releasing a space ship that orbits the earth. it also depicts a unified korean peninsula and u.s. cities engulfed in flames. they believe the launch served as a test for a long-ranged ballistic missile. north korean authorities say they plan to develop and launch

not fear this would lead to military clash with china. i said, i was not concerned of that. and when asked why, i said, i think, well, because we have the best damn navy in the world. this was not an extravagant or hyper bolic statement t. was simply a statement of fact. it was a fact that not only i knew. it was a fact which other nations understood. even one carrier battle group had more military fire power than any other nation's entire navy, and we had two of them on the way to taiwan. so, i was confident that no one was going to challenge the fleet that we were sending there. this -- and in fact, they did not challenge it even before our two carrier battle ships arrived in taiwan, the crisis was over and the maneuvers had been subsided. this positive result was possible because of the military capability of our navy and because both carrier battle groups were battle ready and able to steam towards their destination in less than 24 hours. so, why were we able to respond so effectively? certainly one important reason, because the technology in our ships was the best in the world. the r
